Created with Fabric.js 1.4.5 During the Olympics of 1996, Kerri Strung competed as a United States gymnast. After the teams competed their first three events, the US was in the lead over Russia. During the final event on vault however, the first three US gymnasts did not stick their landings. Kerri was the last to go and needed to perform a clean vault in order to win the gold medal for the United States. On her first attempt, Kerri failed to make a clean landing, received a major point deduction and injured her foot. She was then faced with the decision to take the second vault in attempt to win the gold medal for the US but possibly further injure her foot or withdraw. Kerri chose to take her second vault, stuck the landing, obtained the score necessary to secure the gold medal for the US and was then carried off the mat by her coaches.
